vertex hid

I put the Vertex hid kit which I sell on my 05 and was very pleased. Very bright but does not offend to many people.

I have after market high beams and they do not come close to comparing to my hid low beams. I do not use my high beams any more

All 4 HID lights on at the same time makes for a very bright surrounding area. I would not go back to another regular light after having HID lights.

I also have 6000k for the low beams. They are a very white with a slight blue hue. A thing to know is that the lower the K the higher the lumens, which means the lower the K the brighter the light. But also the lower the K the more yellow the light turns. 4300k is the color temperature with the most output.

Thanks, this helps. I saw that the lower the K the brighter the light. I have my eyes on a 6000k conversion kit now. Thanks again for your replys. This has settled my delima. I will be doing the same, 6000k low and 5000k high.

Do not use vertex hid.

Just wanted to make a comment on one of my last posts about using vertex myself. After using them for a awhile I found out that they were no good. I would not recomend Vertex HID kits to no one. I am using another brand off of ebay that works great.

hid lights

Go to EBAY Stores >>> HID Outdoor Equipments. Price per kit is $97.99 shipping is free I think. They are plug and play. 9006 for the low beams and 9005 for high beams for chevy trucks up to 07 new style. I use the 6000K. I also use the factory headlight assembley, I do not trust aftermarket ones since they tend to leak on me.
